ImPACT Concussion Management Software is a sophisticated research-based software tool developed to help sports-medicine clinicians evaluate recovery following concussion. ImPACT evaluates and documents multiple aspects of neurocognitive functioning including memory, brain processing speed, reaction time, post-concussive symptoms, and an injury documentation system. The ImPACT System is available for Desktop or Online Administration.

ImPACT (Immediate Post-concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) was created as a screening tool to assist sports medicine professionals in evaluating athletes after a suspected concussion.  Medical professionals who most frequently evaluate and treat sports medicine injuries are Orthopaedic surgeons, pediatricians, family medicine practitioners, although a broad range of specialists may also see the concussed athlete following their injury.  In addition, Certified Athletic Trainers often play a crucial role in evaluation and treatment of the concussed athlete and are often involved in the baseline screening of the athlete.

ImPACT was not designed to take the place of regular medical care and should not be used without proper oversight.  ImPACT should never be used as a “stand alone” instrument to make return to play decisions and the test results should always be placed within the context of the overall medical care of the athlete.

It is also important to emphasize that ImPACT is not a substitute for neuropsychological testing, which can only be completed by an appropriately trained and licensed Neuropsychologist.  Neuropsychologists can play an important role in the evaluation of athletes who have experienced a concussion but are not usually involved in the acute management of the athlete. Neuropsychological testing can be particularly useful in treating athletes who have prolonged or complicated recoveries, or who have academic issues following injury.
